Jurgen Klopp's league leaders will have home advantage in the Merseyside derby.

Brendan Rodgers' side are now second behind Liverpool in the top flight, and will host Latics on the first weekend of 2020.

As an Everton fan, I'm fairly confident that the Reds will win as Everton have a frustrating inferiority complex when facing Liverpool, particularly at Anfield.

For Liverpool fans who want the club to remain focuses on Premier League and Champions League success, facing someone like Everton does seem like an unnecessary fixture to play that could potentially prove hard.

Holders Manchester City host League Two (fourth-tier) side Port Vale, while Manchester United visit Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Several Everton fans have expressed their disappointment and frustration on social media after the club were drawn against Liverpool in the FA Cup third round.

National League AFC Fylde will mark their first third-round appearance with a trip to Sheffield United, with National League North Boston hosting Newcastle if they beat Rochdale in a second-round replay.

So there are some exciting matches to look forward to and the games will be played between the 3-6th January 2020.

Arsenal, FA Cup winners on a record 13 occasions, face a potentially testing encounter at home to Championship high-flyers Leeds.
